we study. in a free market economy, recessions and recoveries, upswings and down swings are part and parcel of the world we live in. when you look at how budgets are proposed, off of the congressional budget office projection. they are not that realistic. in 2014, 2015, 2016, they are projected real gdp growth of 4.4%. sounds pretty good. how realistic is it? if you take a look at reality, what's happened since the beginning of the century? gdp has grown at 1.7% and we know we are in a pretty sluggish economy. there is a huge disconnect between what's proposed and what's going on outside this window? >> that's the big deal. the claim is, i'm going to go in and cut taxes. don't worry, cutting taxes is going to be stimulative. we are going to end up with way more jobs and there will be fewer taxes from each individual. there will be way more people paying into the tax system. revenue neutral. lakshman is telling us you have a choice over how much you charge people in taxes. they may not produce all the jobs. what he is doing on day one is adding to the deficit. >> could be but let'

for the president? >> i think if you look at all the economic indicators and where we've seen the economy move over the last three years, especially given what the president inherited in 2009, americans should feel good about the direction we're going in. we've had 33 straight months of new private sector jobs added. second month under 8% for unemployment. we still have work to do. that's what's so important about this election. we need to stick with president, show up and vote for the president so we can keep the policies moving forward that have gotten us headed back the right direction. and not go backwards to the economic policies of the past, the ones that mitt romney is advocating for where you have a trickle down economic attitude. that's exactly what got us into this mess in the first place. we feel good about the report on friday. we know there's a on the more to do. and the president is going to keep working until every american who wants a job can get a job. but we feel like the economy is a good issue for us and the president is proud of his record. >> brent colburn, hope you get some s

"fox news poll" showing him with a nine point ad vage over the president. with mr. obama on the campaign trail governor romney is sharpening the contrast with the president who is best to bring back prosperity for the nation. >> do you want the four more years like the last four years? >> no!. >> you want four more years where 23 million americans are struggling to have a good job? >> no!. >> you want four more years where earnings are going down every year? >> no!. >> you want four more years of trillion dollar deficits in washington? >> no!. >> reporter: governor romney drawing the sharp contrasts with government. do you want bigger government with stifling regulations or smaller leaner government to help the private sector to grow and create jobs. he dinged the president in a new ad today suggesting somewhere down the road he may appoint a secretary of business, watch. >> barack obama says he may appoint a secretary of business. his solution to everything is add another bureaucrat
days has suggested the economy has more momentum going into november than we thought before. however, when we see the pictures of sandy go from essentially heartbreaking disaster to now sort of more nerve-racking social unrest, when we hear some of the stories out there, i don't think those are the kind of pictures that cause people to take long positions in stocks. i think it's a wait-and-see position. wait and see how much sandy has an effect on the economy before you can take a positive position represented by the numbers here. >> all right. so there's a lot of noise in all of this. you've got sandy. you've got the election uncertainty. you've got uncertainty about the broad economy. i can't imagine, ron that, this 100-point selloff in the dow industrials is because people want more economic stimulus and more qe. disappointment over maybe the jobs numbers show the economy is not in need enough of more qe. we've had so much stimulus out there. >> yeah, i think anybody who's been trained on what the fed has to say knows that one month, particularly 170,000 jobs, is not going to chan
not quite as optimistic about where the economy is at and out of the market. and so, their own individual participation has been declining. and i don't know if that's necessarily telegraphed some problems down the road, but what do you think? >> well, i think we're living through a lot of uncertainty in the market, whether it's europe, whether it's the direction, the direction of the u.s. economy and the federal debt. and all of those things are certainly weighing on the retail investor's mind and definitely they're been moving to conservative position, as have been this, they've been protecting liquidity and building their positions and fairly risk averse, now, hopefully i'm cautiously optimistic on the u.s. economy that once they get through this election, regardless of who wins, our leaders in washington come together and develop a plan to deal with our fiscal challenges. >> well, springs eternal, we'll see, i was saying teddy, teddy weisberg, teddy was here the last time we had a two day disruption in 1888 and now, must be living history all over again. teddy. how do you think it's go
frenzied weekend with obama and romney sparring on the such over the economy. well, supporters are working on getting out tuesday's vote. john harwood has been watching all of it. good evening, john. >> reporter: larry, as they crisscross the battleground states the presidential candidates got one last fresh piece of economic data before tuesday's election. that was the october jobs report. it was better than expected which allowed president obama to deliver a message of how far we've come. >> in 2008 we were in the middle of two wars and the worst economic crisis since the great depression. and today our businesses have created nearly 5.5 million new jobs and this morning we learned companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> reporter: as you'd expect, larry, mitt romney stressed the opposite case which is unemployment today remains higher than it was when president obama took office. >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate. down to 5.2% right now. today we learned that it's actually 7.9%. and that's 9 million jobs short of what he
to the economy. that makes it the second most expensive storm in history after hurricane katrina. >> nearly half of new york city's deaths happened on staten island. secretary of state janet napolitano will be there today. anna werner is there. >> reporter: good morning. homes are destroyed. the storm threw cars like toys. that's what it looks like all down this street yet many residents say they believe they've been ignored. some residents of staten island have started calling it the forgotten borough. across storm-ravaged staten island, frustrations are mounting. >> we could have died! we couldn't breathe! we've got 90-year-old people. >> reporter: residents are outraged, claiming their community has been ignored in the days following sandy while aid pours into other parts of new york and new jersey. >> a lot of people are here. a lot of people are hurting. so, it's upsetting. >> reporter: power is out. hundreds of homes have been destroyed and dozens of streets are impassable. still, the city is planning to go ahead with its annual marathon, which kicks off on staten island's verrazano bridge
:30 eastern time. and we'll be slicing and dicing the jobs report and the economy with our guest host, mark zandi. also at 8:00, the former chairman of the council of economic advisers austan goolsbee will join us for the report. and then we'll get reaction from the romney campaign with ron hubbard. that's at 8:40 eastern time. obviously a lot on our plates today. andrew, i'll send it over to you. >> the coast guard opening the port of new york new jersey on a restricted basis today allowing the backlog of barges containing gasoline and fuel into the area for the first time. how soon, however, will we see relief in the area impacted by sandy? that's the big question this morning. joe knows this very well, on my way in today, i had to take a taxicab for $125 because jeeves was this line to get gas, he was out of gas. >> i tried to take a car, my guy who i call -- he is not, but he nights as well be a former -- he has never failed. on on tuesday he came. and there have been snowstorms in the past where we've gone off the road, around, jack moved tractor trailers to get here's couldn't get gas
to deal with the economy. jenna. jenna: keep an eye what is happening in florida and rest of breaking news in politics and otherwise. carl, thank you. jon: the weather has affected election and campaigning plans and hundreds of miles from the eye of the storm, sandy's violent outer bands prompted weather warnings. they kicked up massive waves. this is the no the ocean. these are the great lakes. how much damage did the storm do there? we'll speak to the commander of michigan's emergency management office coming up. >>> startling new numbers out of europe. what the unemployment rate says about the recovery there, and the chances europe could be headed toward another recession. [shouting] many of my patients still clean their dentures with toothpaste. but they have to use special care in keeping the denture clean. dentures are very different to real teeth. they're about 10 times softer and may have surface pores where bacteria can multiply. polident is designed to clean dentures daily. its unique micro-clean formula sing bacteria and helps dissolve stains, cleaning in a better way than brush
in the unemployment rate is a sad reminder that the economy is at a virtual standstill. >> i don't think so. the last month, the unemployment rate came down three ticks. and the romney campaign complained that we hadn't created more jobs. this month, the number of jobs created was 30%, 40% higher than expected and was fairly strong. and then they criticize that the unemployment rate ticked up one tenth. it's the last number before the election, so i think both sides are going to see, try to go through and interpret what it means. i think overall, most economists view it as a fairly solid report. and until we get the growth rate of the economy up faster than 2%, 2.5%, this is probably about what we should expect from a solid report. >> how does one explain the kind of inconsistency? 7.9%. that's up, with unemployment. then you talk about adding 171,000 jobs in october. >> yeah, a great question. a lot of people misunderstood how the jobs work. there's two surveys. the jobs come from a survey of businesses. the unemployt rate comes from a survey of people. each month, there's a lot of variability in bo
, because month to month jobs reports, it is a important milestone by which we can gauge whether the economy is improving. and then, you know, judge the president, what the president is doing. i want you to take a look back to the worst of this recession, guys. this is october of 2009. look at this, the unemployment rate was above 10%. and in this month, 7.9%. you've been traveling to the swing states as i have, what are you hearing, are people feeling better off? today's numbers help any of the candidates? >> well, i tell you, don, we have been on the battleground bus state tour from florida to ohio. people understand the economy is improving. but the real debate is whether it is fast enough and whether mitt romney could have done a better job. in toledo, ohio, today, one of the battle ground counties of ohio, the must win buckeye state, i spoke to mayor bell, he put it out that january 2009, unemployment here was 12.6% in this county. today it is around 7.5, lower than the national average. that is a measurable improvement. that doesn't mean the economy is going on all cylinders right now.
days. but tomorrow will mark a big step toward normalcy for america an its economy as the stock market gets set to open once again. the big question now is, what happens when that opening bell rings tomorrow morning after such a long hiatus and such a disastrous storm? >> really unprecedented. we have team coverage today. scott cohn with the latest on the flooding near wall street. courtney reagan is monitoring the power outages. jackie deangelis is in a new jersey town. we kick it off with bob. you spoke a short time ago with the ceo of the nyc. can it really be business as usual tomorrow? what are you expecting? >> that's what they're hoping for, maria. they said the magic words. trading will resume at the nyse and other exchanges. duncan told me a short while ago it was all subpoeystems go. >> we've had people on site throughout the evening, and we g got the report early this morning that there was no issue with the building. it had not been compromised. so once we heard that, we have been operatie ining under the assumption we would be under normal business trading tomorrow. >> mea
in the battleground state of virginia. all day, in fact. last hour in roanoke, he hammered away on the economy and how in his words americans are in worse shape today than they were four years ago, he says because of president obama's policies. our jim acosta also working the campaign trail, and this is the nuts and bolts of the reaction. >> at an event in roanoke, virginia, mitt romney ended a political truce with president obama in the aftermath of hurricane sandy, while he avoided attacking the president during a series of stops across the state of florida, that was not the case here in virginia. romney went after what he often hears outside some of his events from some of the president's supporters who sometimes chant "four more years," romney said it should be more like five more days. and then he went after an idea the president floated out in recent days when mr. obama talked about potentially naming a secretary of business in a second term. here's what romney had to say. >> we don't need the secretary of business to understand business. we need a president who understands business, and i do. a
for unfair china trading practices. these are important things because the economy is the number one issue. >> you're trying to cram a lot of things in in these last five days. >> chris, let's get to it. we're going to be listening to the president later this hour. his campaign describing the speech as a closing argument to the voters. what tone does he need to strike? chris, does he really need to keep it respectful or hit back against mitt romney? >> you know, i don't think he necessarily needs to hit back. i personally think, no surprise, that it was a mistake for governor romney to come out as harsh as he did. when there's a national crisis, something as significant and so many people have been affected by hurricane sandy, the last thing people think about and talk about and want to focus on is politics. you have to be very careful about that. i think the president is going to come out, especially in light of what you've seen over the last few days, and strike a more positive, unifying tone. i think it's a smart strategy, especially coming down to the last days. let's be honest. i thin
to the economy a little bit. specifically, jobs. we have key readings out today ahead of the big report tomorrow. it is up 140 on the dow and i believe they like this jobs report. i want to talk about adp. they had some issues with the way they put it together and they changed their methodology. does that affect the way we should look at it back i do not know. first of all, it is such a short data series. there is not a lot of history to it. i like it better that it is a private company based on their surveys. they look at tomorrow's employment data like it means something. it is so highly revised. last september at the original estimate came out about 100,000 jobs. the market got hit. it was not a good situation. now, if you look at the number after revisions, it is over 200,000 jobs. my point to the viewer is, try to not look at the individual data point, but look at the trend of the data point. that continues to be positive. connell: give me a quick take on what you think of the stock market in general. i think everything seems to be political or now got this we, obviously, with the storm, wi
's not enough to keep pace with the growing economy and the unemployment rate actually went up to 7.9%. >> the unemployment report comes as the presidential candidates are in their final push before election day. wisdom martin is back in studio with more on today's events. >> always a lot of things going on as we get down to the last couple days before we decide who will be president of the united states. allison and tony, first, the president is coming to our area and will be appearing in manassas. dave matthews, the singer, will be there. today, mitt romney starts in wisconsin and both the president and romney both make appearances in the state of ohio. romney has two stops and the president has three. now, he's trying to make up for the lull in campaigning because of the super storm. the president was back on the campaign trail yesterday making appearances in wisconsin, nevada and boulder, colorado. he also got endorsements from the mayor of new york city, who says he's doing it because the president, president obama, has done a lot on global warming. the president is slamming mi

today on the job market really mean? >> this is a great number for the economy. it basically mirrors what we're seeing in the growth of the gdp. we're seeing the trend moving in the right direction. the numbers have been improving for 29 consecutive months in terms of jobs growth. however, at the same anemic pace we're seeing with gdp. gdp of 2% or less. we're seeing job growth averaging somewhere around $150,000. i would point out that the positive revisions to the two previous months actually bowie the numbers overall. a good number for the economy. jenna: 150,000 jobs added what we're seeing every month. some people say listen that is barely enough to keep up with population growth. why isn't it faster, bob? why aren't we seeing more growth, more jobs? >> because corporations are holding money on their books. though don't know what the regulatory overhang is going to be. they don't know the outcome of the election and they don't know associated costs for things like health care, as well as other benefits that are out there. so rather than make the investment in employees, they're
